** Oddly for Garibaldi, he never crossed paths with his "old friend" in Season 3, instead communicating over an old video recording. This is because Doyle and O'Hare got into a fight when the latter became schizophrenic. Eventually, Doyle gave an ultimatum saying he'd quit if O'Hare remained on the show. Clearly, this ultimatum was still in effect for season 3 (according to Doyle, they'd promised to kick each other's asses) which is why Doyle doesn't share any screen time with him.

[[note]]If this seems like a RealLife KickTheDog moment, bear in mind that no one but JMS knew he was schizophrenic at the time.[[/note]] Eventually, Doyle gave an ultimatum saying he'd quit if O'Hare remained on the show.

** The Zima ad in the background of ''T.K.O.'' might seem like an example, but JMS purposely put it in there as a gag. He said he would be amazed if Zima still existed in the 21st Century, let alone the 23rd.

*** Zack Allen's complaints about his uniform not fitting were actual complaints Jeff Conaway made, unaware that JMS had heard him. He was very surprised to see his comments appear in a script.

** ''In the Shadow of Z'ha'dum'' has a scene where Sheridan starts to apologize to Talia for using her, and she cuts him off by slapping him. According to both JMS and Bruce Boxleitner, Andrea Thompson got herself so worked up in preparation for that moment that she didn't hold back when slapping him. The reactions on the set were all genuine.

** Though with Jerry Doyle's death in 2016, this is seeming less and less likely.

** You remember that line about "electric bleachers"? You probably thought that JMS was just being grimdark. It's an actual quote from Jerry Doyle which JMS "stole" for the show.

Added DiffLines:

* RealitySubtext: Jerry Doyle really did suffer from serious alcoholism in his youth, enough that complications from it killed him at age 60, decades after he'd quit. He's the reason that Garibaldi falling off the wagon was played up for so long in Season 5, not wanting to downplay at all how destructive the condition is.

*** The writer of that episode, of course, was PeterDavid, who was also a prolific writer for the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' ExpandedUniverse, and who wasn't afraid to take a good-natured dig at B5[[note]]Or at least, take a dig at JMS[[/note]] while writing for ''Series/SpaceCases''.
